Hennessey to Offer 557 HP Supercharged Engine Upgrade for 2015 Cadillac Escalade
Texas-tuned Caddy takes aim at AMG Range Rover high-performance SUVs
Sealy, Texas-While Cadillac has reinvented the Escalade, the preferred mount of rock stars, pro athletes and Hollywood’s red carpet elite, Hennessey Performance (HPE) has put in overtime developing a supercharger upgrade for its new 6.2-liter direct-injected V8 engine. It’s all the better for sneaking up on the unsuspecting Mercedes GL63 AMG or Range Rover Sport…that is, until the roar of the exhaust and subtle Hennessey branding give you away.
“Our HPE550 Supercharged Escalade is the perfect balance of attitude, performance and luxury. It’s fast and versatile, and proudly American,” said Hennessey CEO and partner Don Goldman.
The HPE550 package serves up a stout 557 bhp and 542 lb-ft of torque from the belt-driven supercharger producing 6 psi of boost pressure, gains of 32 percent and 18 percent, respectively, over stock.
